Philadelphia is an underrated hotbed for art, science, and culture. Home to an array of venues, museums and institutions, there’s really no good excuse to be bored in this city.
Feed Your Curiosity is a weekly roundup of events in Philadelphia that will broaden your horizons, tantalize your mind, and hopefully sophisticate you into something more than the heathen that you are. Here’s what’s going on this week.
The Analog Watch Co. and Old Blood Jewelry & Wears will be hosting a display of locally-made wares at Dilworth Plaza. This is for anyone looking to get some gift shopping out of the way while supporting the local economy.
Start gift shopping now & avoid the stress later for a holiday #healthyvybe.
